Haha that's what I was going for. It just gets me mad how many times people don't research and practically torture fish.

Also note those are recommended minimum size tanks for those fish. Your probably cursing us all out right now and i dont blame you but you also have to realize what we are saying is true and we have the fish's interest at heart. You will have problems and fish will die. Its a certainty.

It's interesting to hear all of your input. But every aquarium store that we have gone to has never said anything that you(3rd person pleural) guys/girls have said. It's not that we didnt do our research but we must have got a lot of misinformation for a least 3 reputable stores. So far we have had this tank for@ 1year. With no incidents.
P.s instead of attacking newbies you might want to use a little more tac.

Stores are out to make MONEY. They wont just turn down someone who wants to drop 250 bucks in fish. They dont care about the fish's health for the most part. Its a buisness. Thats why you were missled and those fish can not be happy in a small tank.

Ps: Newbies dont like to listen, sometimes you just gotta drop a bomb and hope they realize their mistake.

No body is attacking anyone. If anything its tough love. Fish stores will feed you any lie you can swallow, and when it doesnt work out they get you right back in the store to buy more, its what they do and they are good at it. As the fish mature, there will be problems, you cant stop nature.

You could fit a Moray eel in there, it'll be fine. Throw in a few more puffers too.

... seriously though, can you please take a picture of your current tank (video would be even better)? I HAVE to see this.
